The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is UK youth sports charity which supports 11-25-year-olds who are harder to engage in both education and in the community. We use the power of world class athletes to train and mentor young people to achieve their potential through personal, social and emotional development programmes. In partnerships nationally and locally, our programmes increase young people’s self-esteem, confidence and resilience which enables them to move into employment, become leaders within their communities, achieve in education and to improve their wellbeing through sport and physical activity.
Over the next 3 years, we will support at least 3,000 young people who are harder to reach, to achieve their potential. Each of these 3,000-young people, will inspire 5 more people within their community through their social action projects.
Over the last ten years we’ve helped more than 2,300 into employment as a result of our flagship Get on Track programme and in total our programmes have generated more than £23 million in social value since 2012 London Games..
